The Rolling Stones Add Another Date To 50th Anniversary Shows

The Rolling Stones have added Brooklyn’s Barclays Centre to their itinerary as the band prepares to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. According to Stereoboard, the Brooklyn gig will take place on December 8, placing it smack bang in the middle of their London and New Jersey shows.

The news comes soon after Mick Jagger defended the extremely high ticket prices for the mini tour. Jagger explained that the small number of shows means higher ticket prices are required to cover costs. Jagger also noted that if a ticket is sold at a cost higher than its original purchase price, The Rolling Stones don’t gain any extra profit.

Jagger recently expressed his interest to return to Australia for a Rolling Stones tour. Jagger told The Age that it won’t happen tomorrow, but hopefully sooner rather than later.

“Not this week, but I hope to come to Australia. I haven’t been there for ages. I’m really looking forward to it,” Jagger told The Age.

Last month Keith Richards told Matt Everitt of BBC that he sees The Rolling Stones extending their tour throughout 2013, which he considers to be the real 50th anniversary of the band.

“You know I wouldn’t be surprised,” Richards explained to Everitt, “Nobody’s actually given a heads-up on that, but I don’t think that this band is gonna wind up all of this for four shows. I think they want to do something for the end of the year, and I think next year probably looks like it’s on.”

Hopefully an extended tour will mean cheaper ticket prices and Australian fans won’t have to pay $137 to sit up the back.
